The Gypset Market is a new monthly event where you can find items between 50L and 99L. The participating designers are offering their own interpretations of the gypsy and boho style. In order to purchase items from the venue, you need to wear the Bestyle Magazine Readers group tag. I picked for you the beautiful dress from PurpleMoon, partially mesh and partially flexi, with an oriental flavour that inspired me a visit to the beautiful Azuchi sim. The necklace is from MayloDesigns, sold at the Gypset Market as well, with matching ring and earrings.

Dress: PurpleMoon @ Gypset Market - Harmony Dress in Reds (MESH)
Jewelry: Maylo Designs @ Gypset Market - Gypsy (necklace, bracelets, rings and earrings included)

The Long Road

When I'm looking for peace and balance, there's nothing better than a walk in the middle of green, waiting for sunrise. Not being able to do it in my First Life, I tried to get some relief in the Second one, visiting the beautiful Irish land called Empress and Hierophant.

I will be back in the chaotic fashion industry soon with news about the Gypset Market.

Vintage Boho

I had been planning this post for ages, but at first I couldn't find the time, then I forgot the pics on my laptop and today I realized I had never brought them on my desktop.

I fell in love at first glance with those amazing bags from PurpleMoon: they are not only beautifully crafted, but they also convey that perfect boho-vintage melancholy so close to my usual mood.

They are available in several colors, coming in animated and not animated version, and the price is more than fair.

Bag: PurpleMoon - Vintage Voyager Bag in Brown - 125L (look for it in the Boho House, in front of the main store).

I also enjoyed the look I created to match the bag, so here's a pic as well.

League Goes Boho

"The new League stuff says your name all over it, btw", I was told by a friend a couple of days ago.And she was, obviously, totally right. Nena Janus has just released two sets of nomad inspired skirts, patterned or in plain colors, and a set of gypsy tunics, which are a must have for every bohemian wardrobe. They are available in single colors or patterns, or in fatpacks (a fatpack for each style), avoiding you the trouble of picking.
I want to spend a couple of words on the skirts, which hit my heart not only because they are amazingly beautiful, but also because they are absolutely *wearable*, something that is not always granted when dealing with sculpted skirts of that kind. 
I really appreciated, in the League's Nomad Skirts, the choice of keeping a system layer that matches the pattern or the color, together with other prim attachments on upper and lower legs to enhance the "wholeness" of the skirt, instead of the alpha layer. (While the alpha layer is a good tool to hide hips in case of impossible fits, in my opinion it should never go under the avi's knees: seeing a foot appearing from nowhere, as if it was detached from the rest of your body, when walking or moving, it's something I can't stand.)That being said, the designer's advice is wearing the skirts with a calm AO (not many pirouettes and such) to achieve the best visual effect. Last but not least, the fit was amazingly easy even on my out of average shape - I usually have many troubles in th (Read more...)

Boho Girls Wear Bandanas

Many beautiful bohemian flavor hairstyles are available at the Hair Fair. I bought lots of them already, supporting my shopping mania with the charity cause, and I will need to catch some others in each single store after the event is over (tomorrow). This year my attention was caught by something else though:  in each Hair Fair sim you will find a stall selling bandanas, 50L each. The proceeds of all the bandana sales will go to Wigs For Kids. Tomorrow, July the 15th, it's bandana day, a day meant to show our solidariety not wearing hair. If you want to participate, it doesn't mean you will need to renounce to your vanity: the designers prepared amazing stuff, I bought 3 of them. And no, it won't be something to wear just for one day and then trash it. Or at least not for me.

Ma Bohème

On 9th June 2011 · By Winter Viper · With Leave a comment

Welcome to Bohemian Souls, a small project dedicated to boho style in Second Life.

I have always enjoyed a lot writing boho entries for Orinoco Flow, but while working on some of the latest posts, Bohemian Souls I and II, I felt the need to create something more focused on a style very close to my taste and personality.
However, this blog doesn't claim to be a bible about boho fashion in Second Life: it's rather a tribute to the mood and the feelings this style conveys. For that reason, following the flow of my bohemian thoughts, it will be a sort of journey diary gathering pictures, looks, finds about old and new boho stuff, with some glimpses of ethnic and hippie here and there, as well as all the random wanderings I may share. 
Updates will follow my mood as well.
Any suggestion about articles, stores or places I may not know or be forgetting are more than welcome: works are still in progress!Same for links: I'll be adding blogs I like, bohemian oriented or not, but feel free to contact me if I'm missing you.… Read the restBohemian Soul
